Galleri Magnus Karlsson har glädjen att presentera en solopresentation med Johannes Nyholm på konstmässan Market i Stockholm.

Filmen Las Palmas rönte stor framgång på Göteborgs Internationella Film Festival där den vann både det prestigefyllda kortfilmspriset Startsladden och priset Publikens röst. “Startsladden 2011 går till en tragikomisk film i en galen värld som känns otäckt bekant. En genial hybrid av Sällskapsresan och Easy Rider som går rakt in i våra hjärtan”. Las Palmas skildrar en dag i en ensam kvinnas liv. Det är en enkel historia om ensamhet och alienation. Rollen som den medelålders kvinnan Marja skall spelas av en ettåring, de övriga rollerna av marionettfigurer. Alla miljöer är artificiella, uppbyggda av tygkulisser.
